Biography
  • A respected Australian playwright and critic, Sydney Tomholt was born in Melbourne but spent much of his early adult life overseas, firstly as a soldier in France and England during World War I, and then as a businessman and editor in China, Mongolia and the Philippines. After returning to Sydney in 1932 he worked successfully as a radio scriptwriter, and as a drama critic for the Sydney Morning Herald (1944-1951), at the same time gaining recognition as a serious dramatist, principally as a writer of one-act plays. Despite the acknowledgment Tomholt received, including encouragement from George Bernard Shaw, the deeply psychological themes of his plays proved too adventurous for Australian theatre of the day and were rarely staged.
